The Venice Architecture Biennale is a global cultural event that attracts the world’s leading art and architectural minds and influencers in a melting pot of creativity and Italian glamour.
The event is the premier international forum to showcase and express Australian culture, innovation and creativity through its architecture and design.
Set in the romantic canal city of Venice, Italy, the Biennale enables Australia to engage in a global conversation, important to the future shaping of our built environment, and provides a platform for international partnerships and trade opportunities.
Australia has one of only 30 permanent pavilions within the magnificent Giardini that are allocated to selected countries for the display of innovative national works.
ESQ Collective is contracted to The Australian Institute of Architects (the ‘Institute’), the professional body for architects in Australia representing over 12,000 members.
